Most clear-thinking Americans know Mitt Romney was accurate was he accused the failed president of being a pathetic apologist. Now he unveils a new ad further stressing that point.
Obama can claim it’s not true, but all you need to do is check the video clips of his apology tours.
Mitt Romney’s campaign released a new television ad Tuesday doubling down on the candidate’s charge during the foreign policy debate that President Obama had conducted an “apology tour.”
“The president began with an apology tour of going to various nations and criticizing America,” Romney says, as the ad begins. “I think they looked at that and saw weakness.”
The ad then plays footage from the Monday night where Romney repeated the charge, one he has leveled frequently on the campaign trail.
“The reason I call it an apology tour, you went to the Middle East and you flew to Egypt and to Saudi Arabia and to Turkey and to Iraq, and you skipped Israel, our closest friend in the region,” says Romney in the debate clip. “You said that America had dictated to other nations. Mr. President the U.S. has not dictated to other nations, we have freed other nations from dictators.”
